Botox and fillers stop facial muscles from creating wrinkles but many people wonder when is it too early to begin.

A dermatologist in Boston believes the younger the better.

He justifies his statement by saying that if women are treated in their 20’s and 30’s, they will notice a dramatic effect on their appearance when they hit their 50’s.

He claims that some procedures actually stimulate collagen growth.

However, most experts say you should carefully select your doctor and ask them the best time to get the procedure.

Some side effects include eyelid droop, cockeyed eyebrows, crooked smile and dry eye.

Experts say sunscreen and healthy living are less expensive ways to keep a youthful appearance.
